Friday Pattern Co: Pogonip Pullover

The Pogonip Pullover is the perfect layer for all your outdoor adventures! It is an unlined pullover jacket that features welt pockets, a sport collar, and a snap or button half front placket. It is designed for woven or stable knit fabrics so you can have a lot of fun with your fabric choice. It looks great in everything from quilted fabrics, to fleece, to linen! Packing and carrying the Pogonip is a breeze with the fun (and optional), packable pocket (with strap).

Holidays bring joy for some and darkness for others.  No matter what, we could all use more joy in our lives.  It’s one of the main reasons we sew!  Where is your joy in the process?

  • Choosing a pattern
  • Designing/drafting patterns

  • Extra details
  • Being finished!
  • Sharing on social media
  • Gifting
  • Using scraps
  • Looking at what others have sewn on Instagram
  • Using certain types of fabrics
  • Specific pattern types (does the simplicity of an elastic waist skirt make you happy, or a technical shirt pattern?
